  1. Your articles are so useful, it totally saved me.
    It’s a pleasure to read a text so well detailed and clear, you went straight to the point and also used a very interesting methodology to keep our focus in the subject.

    Thank you

  2. Very clear and easy to understand. Great job :slight_smile:

  3. Hi Rene,
    What happens when Portfast is enabled on a port but BPDU filter is not globally enabled and the port receives a BPDU.


  4. Chandru,
    The port will lose its portfast status, and will continue to function like a normal port (without Portfast). It will not be disabled unless BPDU Guard was also enabled.

    FYI: Rene has a Lesson related to this topic here

  5. Hi Rene,

    It means Portfast enabled interface still sends and recevies BPDU.
    what happens when We configure BPDU filter ?
